Haven't thought this through?

I beg to differ!

I enjoyed the chance to share my p.o.v. with as diverse a forum as possible who might enjoy a non-Dead head's appreciation of certain aspects of GD stuff which was freely available here.

I have a good idea of what Dead purists prefer, and it's not the Grateful Dead I prefer... whereas there are music fans of more than just the one band (GD) and or style of music that band pioneered who might be open to some GD on their playlists which might tend towards a wider, more diverse selection not centered
around GD jams.

Where to find this receptive forum?
Not in a GD fan forum.
Why not this one, where the GD are certainly a large part (until that ends, soon) of the possible interest but not the only one.

There were until last Fall non-Dead music print zines such as Arthur directing people HERE - pointing out shows on this archive for people who wanted to hear Dead not neccessarily the kind the average Dead-head would recommend.

I concede that (with the changes) it's all a moot point anyway.

It's been fun, for me anyway...
Thanks LMA.

Well, I expect anyone who can bear in mind the broader readership of LMA when bringing the Dead into a discussion of music are not going to have a problem posting thoughtful contributions in either venue. But I imagine the hyper-focused ones who post on some minutae while not even mentioning the band (assuming everyone knows it's always about the Dead) are probably going to get pointed to the more suitable new forum by the larger readership.
